The Difference a Year Makes

August 2011 1st day of Preschool Year 1 

August 2012 1st day of Preschool Year 2

A lot of us are getting ready to run our races we have prepared for all summer. We are going to compare ourself to last year and be upset if we do not set a new PR. I know there is a huge possibility I will not PR my favorite race this coming Saturday. Not because I have not worked hard for the past year or that I haven't tried. Simply because we are working adults with families, children and jobs. One thing I know for sure is my handsome son has most definitely grown in the past year. Not only is he physically taller than he was a year ago but his imagination has grown by leaps and bounds! He is more mature than he was this time last year. His favorite phrase right now is "I don't need you anymore" :( 

I hope we all remember to appreciate the growth in the other areas in our life. Our running may be in the same place it was last year but we are still running and should be grateful to have two healthy legs and one healthy body that can endure those runs. No matter how fast or how slow. Maybe we should slow down a little each day since the two pictures above show that life can pass us by before we know it.
